Ah! The Duomo
Like a mountain of pure God dropped from the sky, the Duomo dominates the centre of Milan through its sheer size and scale. It's hard for even the most heathenlike of the heathen not to be impressed by the decoration, the statues, the marble - there isn't a single square inch that doesn't have some kind of ornament. This year we went up on the roof - which like the rest is covered in marble - to see how everyone looked from so very high. Like ants it turns out.
